Sprue launches new 10-year carbon monoxide alarm as a cost-effective solution for installers and housing providers
Published on 8 April 2014
Home safety products specialist, Sprue Safety Products has launched a new 10-year carbon monoxide (CO) alarm that offers a cost-effective solution for installers, landlords and housing providers looking to provide better protection against carbon monoxide for homeowners and tenants.
With an extended 10-year life warranty and advanced diagnostics, the FireAngel CO-9X-10T-FF CO alarm offers peace of mind with back-up from Sprue for the lifetime of the product.
For landlords who have a duty of care to protect tenants against the risk of carbon monoxide in their properties, the CO-9X-10T-FF features comprehensive diagnostic software to analyse historical CO events. The alarm’s micro-processor constantly collects and reviews data to determine CO levels, battery condition and status of the alarm.
In the event of a carbon monoxide leak, data from the alarm can be downloaded onto a PC from which Sprue can produce a report, showing when the alarm activated and the level of carbon monoxide that triggered it. This provides vital information for landlords, enabling them to see the amount of CO their tenants may have been exposed to and when. This detail can determine if the CO is leaking from within the property and any patterns in the alarm activating can help diagnose possible causes of the gas’ presence so appropriate action can be taken to keep occupants safe.
A sealed-for life power pack and an end-of-life warning alerts owners when the alarm needs replacing. With no need to replace the battery, this offers value for money and ultimate peace of mind for contractors, housing providers and end users.
For installers, the accompanying tamper-proof Fast-Fit single pin bracket makes installation of the CO-9X-10T-FF extremely quick and simple.
Straightforward to use with a large test and reset button, the alarm features triple LED lights showing power, fault and alarm so occupants have a visual indication of when a CO leak has occurred in addition to the alarm sounding.
The CO-9X-10T-FF carbon monoxide alarm joins the existing range of 7-year CO products in the FireAngel range.
Product Manager, Wendy Spiers, said: “This latest addition to our range of CO alarms creates a long-term partnership with customers. While the alarm provides longer life protection for occupants, its diagnostic functionality means we can help landlords identify and resolve any leaks before lives are at risk. While they protect their tenants, we look after the landlord by providing a valuable audit trail.”
The CO-9X-10T-FF is fully certified to the latest European standard BS EN 50291-1:2010.
